It’s baaacccckk! Cinema Aesthetic has been on hiatus for way too long
**This is a series on stylealchemy, titled Cinema Aesthetic, which explores the importance of wardrobe and set design within film (mostly) but may include music video and television**
Okay, so a couple of weeks ago, I saw Bonnie and Clyde in the movie theater and it got me thinking about our recession and the idea of a new depression and how that would affect our wardrobe. While sitting in the theater watching Bonnie and Clyde rob bank after bank I couldn’t help but be drawn to Bonnie’s style.
Costume designer Theadora Van Runkle did an amazing job of creating a defining look for both Bonnie and Clyde. Berets, neckchiefs, slim sweaters and mid-length skirts that hit the calf all lend a romantic image of these criminals. Simply put, these are some elegant-looking bank robbers.
Here is the original trailer for the movie:
